A white plume of smoke from a fire in Oregon, USA, near the center of the coastline, blows in a southwestwardly direction. The fire is burning in or near the Coquille Myrtle Grove State Natural Site, a state park administered by the Oregon State Parks and Recreation Department.

Moving to the right, several lakes are visible in the Cascade Mountains, including the round caldera of Crater Lake, due east of the fire. The lake rests in the remains of a destroyed volcano (Mount Mazama) and is 1,949 feet (594 m) deep at its deepest point, making it the deepest lake in the United States.
